    Good new for consumers I guess, but bad for writers in the long term. It’s probably not profitable being Amazon’s bitch. But I guess its the sign of the times, nobody wants to pay for shit anymore. People complain when an app is 99 cents instead of free, complain about paying for music etc.

    People would rather have a free app that shoves ads up their ass with each tap, than pay $0.99 for a quality app.
